At South Stanley Junior School we believe that effective SEND provision must involve strong communication and cooperation between all key stakeholders. For this reason we place strong, positive relationships with SEN children and their parents at the heart of this process.
Consultation with Children and Young People with SEND
Teachers/SENCO and Support Staff will work with children and young people to identify the support needed to meet agreed outcomes. This will be discussed in conjunction with children at least termly, so that they are made aware of the addition to or different from that is available to them.
All provision is planned and any interventions are allocated to individual needs. The children take an active role where appropriate, with setting their outcomes and discussing them with the class teacher/SENCO.
Consultation with parents and carers of children and young people with SEND
We are committed to working with parents and carers to identify their child’s needs and support. Parents are a vital part of the graduated approach, and their views will inform the support provided to children throughout that process.
Parents and carers will be involved throughout the process in a range of ways, for example:
- Termly parents/ carers evenings;
- Ongoing discussions with a class teacher and/or SENCO;
- An ‘open-door’ policy, where parents and carers are welcome to come into school to discuss any concerns they may have;
- Through regular reviews of their child’s SEN Support Plan/ EHC Plan.
